FIAT 500 POWERED BY DIESEL
A one-off collaboration between two iconic Italian brands, the new Fiat 500 by Diesel is a synthesis of the country's automotive skills and fashion savvy. This small but stylish vehicle embraces the best ingredients of Italian design: passion, innovation and creativity. The limited-edition car - 10,000 models- will be available in Europe and Japan from November 9, 2008.
Sergio Marchionne, FIAT CEO: "The Fiat 500 has been extremely successful, especially in international markets, and this new version created in collaboration with Diesel is a welcome addition to the range. Diesel has been an ideal partner because from the very beginning the company has shown an enormous capability for exporting the best of Italian creativity."
Renzo Rosso, President of Diesel: "The car Fiat 500 symbolizes Italy the way I would like it always to be: creative, passionate, cheerful; which is why the first car by Diesel could have only been a Fiat 500! We put all the values that we and Fiat strongly believe in, into this project; the same ones that allowed the brand Diesel to become what we are and what we stand for in the world."
The project is the result of a partnership between designers of the Centro Stile Fiat - led by Roberto Giolito, creator of the revamped "500" - and the Diesel creative team led by Creative Director Wilbert Das. The aim of the project was to create an "urban survival vehicle" with low fuel consumption, which could negotiate cluttered city streets while expressing a strong personality. Sporty yet subtle, the car's impact is boosted by aesthetic details, starting with the exclusive colors developed exclusively for this model by the two creative teams: green and bronze, as well as the more familiar black.
The 500 by Diesel is touched with details that capture the essence of the cult brand. The most obvious are the 16" alloy hubcaps emblazoned with Diesel's famous 'mohican' logo. In addition the brake callipers (of the 1.4 litre 100 bhp model) are painted bright yellow. Fenders and body trim feature 'rivet' detailing. They're also in chrome, along with the radiator cowling and the distinctive logo on the hood. The Diesel logo can be seen on the rear decal, where the five air intakes of the classic Fiat 500's characteristic cooling system has been reproduced.
The same strong personalization can be seen inside the car. The seats and steering wheel are stitched with yellow thread to mimic the look of denim. The mohican logo stands out on a yellow background on top of the gearstick, while the 'fifth pocket' of the iconic Diesel jean is stitched onto the sides of the front seats. And in the door well you'll find the famous 'For Successful Living' claim.
The 500 by Diesel is available in three configurations: the 1.2 litre 69 bhp, the 1.3 litre Multijet 75 bhp turbo diesel and the 1.4 litre 16v engine delivering 100 bhp. All have five-to-six speed mechanical gears, although the petrol engine can be combined with Fiat's DuaLogic robotized clutch-free gearbox.
For its communication the two brands chose a 'smart&dark' style, graphically represented by a pill. A logo that is also an object with a contemporary shape: mysterious, provocative and the focal point of 24 months of communication and events. The first is the international launch on September 21 at Milan's Museum of Science and Technology: in a place where humankind's dreams of mobility are brought to life. Among Leonardo's flying machines, military planes, boats, trains, submarines and motorbikes - a car arrives. The 500 by Diesel: the latest iteration in the endless quest for greater mobility.

Andromeda lights up the Trianon Palace Hotel, Versailles
In the places of history, the design and creativity of the leading hand-made Murano glass lighting company
Andromeda has created the decorative lighting for the Trianon Palace Hotel in Versailles. Opened in 1910, the Hotel is 500 m from Louis 14th’s royal residence with a splendid view of the Palace. It is not just any old hotel, but a historic location... the Treaty of Versailles was in fact signed in one of its rooms, the Clémenceau. As part of a major renovation project covering the entire structure, the interior designer Fiona Thompson in collaboration with the London based Richmond International studio asked Andromeda to create decorative elements able to make a stay in the hotel a unique experience between aesthetics and design, fascination and atmosphere. This was the starting point for a decorative lighting project covering the building’s most important areas - the Main Entrance, the Gallery, the Fine Dining Restaurant and the Brasserie. Custom made solutions able to bring out the best of the architectural and functional context were designed for each room.
To underline the extraordinary nature of the place, it was decided to use for the first time the Knit element, designed by Karim Rashid, in a structural and decorative concept developed by Michela Vianello, Andromeda Art Director, due to be completed in 2009 with presentation of a new series of structures with a fluid dynamic surface, introducing a new type of artistic element on the lighting scene. Starting from the main entrance and along the more than 30 m. of the Gallery, four indefinable structures suspended at a height of 2 m. and weighing 150 kg represent a source of diffuse energy and light. Consisting of 1300 Knit elements, the particular colour combination - from smoke grey to light grey, from transparent glass to an exclusive aged mirror effect - each element is characterised by a decorative motif... a spiral, a vertical stripe, or leopard's spots. The Trianon Palace restaurant has been entrusted to Gordon Ramsay who is opening his first restaurant in France. The Fine Dining Restaurant is characterised by a simple intimate atmosphere, decorated by Andromeda with a preview of the "Pearls" collection. Designed by Michela Vianello for Andromeda, it consists of six 4 m. high custom made structures each with 220 transparent glass spheres. Arranged in two different configurations - a descending spiral and on irregular levels - the spheres are handmade in three different sizes and decorated with three different relief patterns - the ballottòn effect (a dotted web pattern), striped and ribbed. Diameter, decoration and distribution create a complex movement over which the light flows, creating an appearance of great aesthetic lightness. A complex light control and supply system enables the atmosphere to be changed according to the needs of the room.
Gordon Ramsay also wanted a second less formal room, for which Fiona Thompson has designed a more casual relaxed atmosphere. The la Veranda brasserie looks out over the magnificent garden in front of the Versailles palace. Characterised by the geometric patterns of the window and the formal simplicity of the décor, the contrast between light and dark tones suggested the use of elements from the Soirée collection. This is a reinterpretation of the Venetian chandelier brought up to date in Andromeda taste. With an evocative name, the five Le Roi c’est moi chandeliers are an active presence in the long room, softening the rigorous profile of the interiors with their gentle shapes.
Built in 1909 by architect René Sergent on the site of an old monastery, the Trianon Palace looks out over the royal gardens of the Castle of Versailles. Immediately a favourite haunt of Parisian high society, the beauty of the building and legendary gardens attracted guests of the calibre of Marcel Proust, Sarah Bernhardt and René Lacoste. The Duke and Duchess of Windsor chose to spend their honeymoon there and in 1919 it hosted work to draw up the Treaty of Versailles. Less than 30 minutes from Paris, the Trianon Palace is a magnificent synthesis of history, elegance, excellent services and natural enchantment. The hotel is part of the Starwood Westin Group; Gordon Ramsay’s restaurant and brasserie are run by an Italian chef: Simone Zanoni; the Trianon also boasts one of France's top Spas.

Summer 2008 Las Vegas Market Runs July 28-Aug. 1
New Building Opening, New Product Introductions, Inspiring Seminars, Add Up to Business-Building on World Market Center Las Vegas Campus
For the first time in the history of Las Vegas Market, all exhibits, showrooms, social events and seminars will be on one central campus located in the heart of Las Vegas at World Market Center Las Vegas, soon to be the world’s largest trade complex serving the home furnishings industry. Summer Las Vegas Market runs July 28 – August 1. “The grand opening of our third Building this Summer is a watershed event. It celebrates a critical mass of over 5 million square feet of world class showrooms in one integrated, state-of-the-art campus—truly redefining everything about the Market experience,” said President and Chief Executive Officer Robert Maricich. Centralizing the Summer 2008 Las Vegas Market makes it the most efficient and cost-effective market to shop, Maricich said, since concentrating the Market experience will maximize productivity and convenience, facilitating more showroom visits in less time while increasing connectivity between buyers and sellers throughout Market week. “It’s not enough to simply open our doors to the industry,” Maricich said. “In today’s challenging economy we have to make our event extraordinarily beneficial and well worth the trip. Now more than ever, buyers and sellers need to attract new customers and stimulate sales. We will have more new product introductions than any other Market and programming geared to truly help attending buyers compete profitably.”

Andromeda turns the light on Beijing where the Klubb Rouge opens in the name of art and design
From collaboration between Imaad Rahmouni and Andromeda comes a lounge restaurant destined to become a feature of Olympic nights in the Chinese capital.
A world preview for the first images of the Klubb Rouge, the eagerly awaited restaurant designed by rising design star, Imaad Rahmouni, soon to open in Bejing to warm up the Olympic nights. In the wake of the success of Shanghai's Bar Rouge, the French architect (former pupil of Philippe Starck) puts his signature to this new restaurant set to become a must for the sparkling Chinese capital. Its distinctive feature is a cascade of glass and light created by Andromeda.
A decorative lighting creation with unprecedented technical and aesthetic characteristics - 650 irregular Murano glass spheres, blown and shaped by hand and arranged in four rows with 22 cascades each for a total of 88 (in respect of Chinese numerology in which 8 is a lucky number). A presence which takes up a total surface area of 82 square metres and is the characterising feature of the restaurant, becoming its iconographic and identifying element. The exclusive hand working of the glass is accompanied by latest generation lighting technology - 8000 LEDs and 250 spotlights powered by fibre optics provide diffuse atmospheric lighting. The colour red which characterises the restaurant concept as a whole and also inspires its name is the absolute star of the work. The spheres with a different intensity and transparency according to the thickness of the glass are modelled individually in appropriate sizes and shapes to create a play of perspectives and reflections, shimmering like fluctuating bodies along a soft wave. Throughout the vibrant length of the work, the spheres are mirrored in a steel plate which reflects and expands the chromatic effect from the top to the bottom. The light stimulates a captivating three dimensional effect, helping to create an experience of immersion in red. The effect obtained is the result of the union between the best characteristics of Andromeda's glass working skills (precision and attention to detail, the play of colours, the technique underlying production) and the appeal of a modern design with a free expression.

Robert Radi Celebrates 15 Years of Product Design and Development
Beverly Hills, CA – May 13th 2008 – Robert Radi, an award-winning designer based in Beverly Hills, California, has reached a new career milestone today: 15 years of product design and development done right.
Radi still approaches every new Project with the same enthusiasm and ambition that set him apart fifteen years ago and landed him the first Product Design Account.
"I offer the constant striving to create a product that is best suited to the client, the market, and the consumer" says Radi "In order to do that, we try to understand the entire context for the design, from its place in a company's brand strategy to its tooling in the factory to its future role in a consumer's everyday life. By incorporating these elements into the design process, we are able to produce work that is relevant, intelligent, and, of course, aesthetically pleasing."
Radi is best known for some of his most commercially successful designs—including Personal Microdermabrasion and Consumer Product projects -- that have collectively generated more than $200 million in sales. Radi's entire body of work demonstrates his attention to detail, his unique sense of styling, but also his ability to come up with humorous, original concepts for consumer products.

IOnOne art  | design |  Maòli - Salone del Mobile 2008 – FuoriSalone event -  A+MBookstore gallery  - MARABÙ  
4/14 - 21

Maòli has expanded its collection of unconventional furnishings with a new product that is the result of cooperation with designer Alessandro Loschiavo. After the much-talked-about success of the Walking Family series, presented for the first time last year in Paris and that recently received the Good Design Award from The Chicago Athenaeum museum, it adds to the family of surrealistic objects inspired by the nature of the African savannah. This time in particular, the stimulus came from the observation of certain wading birds that habitually live along the shores of the great lakes in equatorial Africa. Their tall, slender legs and cautious, measured movement as they advance in shallow waters were the cues that quite influenced the shaping of the MARABÙ a side table, made entirely in Mahogany or Rose heartwoods and composed of a flat teardrop-shaped top, two obtuse-angled legs and circular base. The legs are substantially equal to thus cut wastage to the minimum in the wood-working phase, and are fixed to the top and base with a slight rotation of one with respect to the other. The result is an “ornitho-morphic” object that effectively recalls a wading bird (like the marabou stork) caught as if walking in a pond. Marabù is intended to be a homage to surrealist artist Meret Oppenheim and his 1939 work “Table with Bird's Legs”, produced in the 1970s by Simon S.p.A. as part of the Ultramobile Collection overseen by Dino Gavina. Marabù can be seen in Milan on the occasion of the coming Salone del Mobile furniture show, from 14th to 21th April next at the A+MBookstore, in the form of a curious installation called “Il Lago dei Marabù” and ironically inspired by Tchaikovsky’s celebrated ballet “Swan Lake”. This setting will also be achieved using a new special Maòli aluminium and will see the participation of Aliantedizioni.

KOKUYO Design Award 2008 Call for Entries
kuyo Co., Ltd. (Headquarters: Osaka City; President: Akihiro Kuroda) has announced the Kokuyo Design Award 2008 design competition, and is encouraging all those wishing to participate to submit their user-oriented product designs. The goal of the competition is to develop excellent ideas into commercial products. Applications are accepted from April 1 to June 30, 2008.
Theme: "Carbon"
The carbon in our bodies can account for as much as 20% of our body weight. Excluding water, carbon makes up more than one-half of the composition of our body.
The earth was once covered in carbon dioxide. The first living creatures used the power of the sun to form their bodies from this massive amount of carbon. Plants continued this method, and today we live amid carbon that has accumulated since prehistoric times. Many of the natural materials we use every day are compounds of carbon; wood, paper, cloth, leather, and plastics made from fossil fuels such as petroleum and coal. Creatures ingested carbon from the atmosphere to make these natural materials.
We also use a wide range of materials formed exclusively from carbon, such as diamonds, pencil lead, carbon fibers, and the toner used in copy machines. New materials such as carbon nanotubes are also attracting attention.
The theme of this competition is carbon building block of life. This does not mean we are looking solely for charcoal designs. All materials containing carbon such as paper, cloth, various plastic products, wood, and gas or gasoline are acceptable. Please try designing a lifestyle that incorporate carbon, thinking about where the carbon came from and where it will go after use. Category:
Objects used in the office, home, or public spaces

IOnOne art | events | design |  Falmouth’s  Performance Sportswear Design course produces swimwear for Celia Birtwell - 17 January 2008

Falmouth’s Performance Sportswear Design course produces swimwear for Celia Birtwell
When Swimathon, the world's largest swimming fundraising event, needed swimwear designs produced against incredibly tight margins and deadlines UCF’s Performance Sportswear course jumped at the opportunity. Simon Heap, creative director of Cornwall based Design for Sport explains how an existing relationship with course leaders Patrick and Jane Gottelier led to their course coming to the rescue of the charity Swimathon. “When Design for Sport was first commissioned by Swimathon to produce a swimsuit for this charity event, created by acclaimed textile designer Celia Birtwell, the client was in a state of panic. They had tried the Far East, Europe and the UK but had not found anyone that could produce a prototype and short production run within an extremely short timescale. “With our relationship with University College Falmouth in mind, we immediately contacted Performance Sportswear course leader Patrick Gottelier and tried to establish a viable timescale. Even with the Christmas holiday period falling within the schedule Falmouth came up with the goods, ahead of the deadline.” While discussing the benefit of having local performance sportswear manufacturing and production expertise, Simon said: “Design for Sport is constantly pushing the boundaries of sports design and with an academic partner like University College Falmouth we look forward to working together on even more exciting projects. "
This is Swimathon's 22nd year and our target is to raise £1.8million for Marie Curie Cancer Care and The Swimathon Foundation. Between 15,000 and 20,000 people take part every year across the UK setting themselves and their teams' various Distance Challenges.
University College Falmouth is a founding partner in the Combined Universities in Cornwall (CUC), a unique initiative to promote regional economic regeneration through Higher Education. The CUC is funded mainly by the European Union (Objective One), the South West Regional Development Agency, and the Higher Education Funding Council for England, with support from Cornwall County Council. ...
